Wednesday Woodworking – Heart box

Just in time for Valentine’s day: A heart shaped box.

This is a project that our marquetry club did last weekend.  It’s a band saw box about five inches across.  I didn’t get my 100% finished, so here are the progress pictures.  The next step is to complete the marquetry for the top – a heart shaped Celtic knot.  Then a bit of sanding and some wipe on ploy for a finish.

The lid swings open and the inside bottom has a veneer applied to it.

The lid top will get this Celtic knot marquetry.

I hope to get some time this weekend to finish the marquetry.  Might write a poem about it this week.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

    I love the Celtic knot – watching to see how that turns out. The heart box is lovely.

  2. Nice work, Andrew. I like how the lid swings out of the way on a pivot. Where did you make you entry cut to remove the waste from the middle of the saw? You clearly did a good job as it’s not easy to spot! 😉

      The blade entry was done between the top heart lobes. The photo hides it well. In person you can find it if you look hard enough. I tried to keep the blade running with the grain to help hide it. Thanks
